Alot of Koreans started what Yakuza is today. Yakuza was mainly created by Koreans and some japs.

Because Koreans were considered low lives in Japan when they lived their most of them went into criminal life. They are basically what started the Yakuza. All the Early Yakuza bosses were zainachi koreans, they were Japenese Koreans.

A bit of an overstatement. Koreans have always been in the minority of Yakuza membership as compared to Japanese, including dating from their origins.

if you look at the history of the yakuza, the ones who started the biggest families were Koreans. Look at Yamaguchi Gumi for example. It is the biggest Yakuza in Japan with almost a quarter million members. while it has mostly japanese members, it was started by a korean living in japan and the leadership today still is made mostly of the same bloodline. Same goes for a lot of the bigger gumis.

The relationships in the Asian criminal underworld have always really intrigued me. Certainly something worth researching. Have any of you guys or do any of you guys live in Japan/Korea?
